BTD Forums  /  The GenoType Diet  /  Teacher vs. Warrior Forum Writing Styles
Posted by: Adam, Friday, April 12, 2013, 4:16pm
When writing out posts on the forum, I've noticed that Teachers tend to be wordy and Warriors less so.  Very much less so.  What do you all think?

Possibly.

According to Dr. D's descriptions in The Genotype Diet, this makes sense.  Warriors need to learn to relax and stay aware of the tendency to get caught up in stress.  Teachers have a different type of disposition.  :)

Adam, I see a definite difference in Teachers and Warriors in their speaking styles as well.  Both of
my sons are Teachers....They seem to want to explain everything in detail....They seem
to intuit a need to answer questions that aren't yet asked....  My husband is a Warrior. He uses far less words than our sons.

So, you all see where I'm going with this?

Have you all noticed my posting style?  Very wordy.

I even break things up into paragraphs so you can read it clearer.

I post a lot about my feelings.  Talk endlessly about food and cooking and trials and tribulations about my diet.

I ramble on and on and on.

Yep.  I'm a Teacher.  Glad we finally got that one solved. :)

Yes, I agree....your posting style is very much like mine and other Teachers. I'm curious if we can
find any "talky " Warriors on this forum.

Taking this into a Myers-Briggs direction...

I'm curious Chloe if you've ever had your Myers-Briggs tested.  I was between ISFJ (Nurturer) and ISTJ (Duty Fulfiller).  When I select ISFJ in SWAMI, I'm Teacher.  When I select ISTJ, I'm Warrior.  I have had to do some major soul searching lately.  It has also helped to go here:

http://personalitycafe.com/forum/

I went to a thread entitled "You know your an ISFJ when..." and read some of the responses and they really clicked with me.  Then I read the same kind of thread in the ISTJ forum, and only a couple of replies clicked.  

I think the main thing is the F part - Feeling.  I am notorious for getting my itty bitty feelings hurt.  I can't be all cold and calculating T - Thinking.  I do a lot of the thinking part, but in the end I go with my feelings.

The Duty Fulfiller seems to do their work out of simple duty.  I, on the other hand, have fulfilled my duty more out of "what will my mom think", or my boss, or my sister, or my wife, or my kids, etc.

Now that I'm older I take criticism fairly well, but when younger it was horrible.  I would just clam up and pout for days.  I'd get teased at work and just take it so much to heart.  I would perform my work always thinking what my boss would think about my performance.  I finally got the most wonderful supervisor (who I feel was a Nomad) who was the very best person in the world.  I miss her so much, and am actually fighting back tears as I write this.

And, really, I'm not stressed at all writing all this.  I am enjoying it immensely.  I think if I was a Warrior I'd about have a heart attack after writing all this.  But, really, I feel better now.  Yep... ISFJ... Teacher. :)

Perhaps you are actually Warrior.  I was measured as Warrior in the Genotype book by my mom the Warrior.  And was Warrior for a couple years under SWAMI, until about a year ago when it seemed everyone was changing genotypes on their SWAMI.  I know that ABJoe went from Warrior to Nomad, for example.

The thing is, I was a 39% Warrior before my SWAMI changed me to 42% Teacher with some SWAMI updates. Every time I look at myself in the mirror, I see Warrior (tall, elongated head, almond shaped jaw). So, I just don't see a significant distinction in my case. Yes, I can be wordy, but not in a lot of situations or settings.

I would probably be more wordy and explain things in more detail if it wasn't for the fact that some people, whether in public forums or real life, can be very judgmental and inadvertently give unsolicited advice.

I have made a lot of life choices that might not seem conventional or mainstream. Being a conservative Christian woman that homeschools multiple adopted children with special needs makes me a less than typical person (though I don't at all regret any of those choices). Although I'd like to share more of those details, most people can't relate to any of those characteristics.

Perhaps other Warriors feel somewhat that way and don't feel like others can relate to them and therefore don't speak up much. Or perhaps they feel vulnerable to criticism and don't want to open up easily.

This was due to either change in the body to make the measurements different or error in the original measurements...

OK, bad example.  But, I distinctly remember many people switching genotypes about a year ago after simply signing onto SWAMI after having not signed on in a while.  I was one of them.  I changed nothing on it and was switched magically to Teacher.  This recent flip to Warrior and back again was due to a simple Myers-Briggs change.

Ha!  That's funny because I just watched the movie Midnight in Paris (great film btw) and without spoiling it too much there is an Ernest Hemingway connection in the film.  I've never read anything by him.  So, looked him up in wikipedia and found that his first novel is The Sun Also Rises which I checked out yesterday and intend to start this weekend.

You think he's Warrior, eh?  I think you might be onto something there.  But, to be honest, I think he'd consider internet forums a waste of valuable drinking/fighting time. ;D

A perfect observation. Earnest Hemmingway exemplifies the warrior, IMO. Direct, lean, efficient.  No fluff, but between the lines an emotional clarity like no other. He processed his senses, perceptions and intuition in living them. No doubt his writing was an obligation to himself in maintaining a workable presence in an over-decorated world.

Adam, I test INFP  http://www.personalitypage.com/INFP.html

  As much as I like to write and communicate, I'm actually not someone who would
be very outgoing in a crowd.  I like intimacy.... one on one....Sitting in silence, typing on a computer
often feels like I'm one on one.  I like writing in a journal....when the book is full, I take it out to my BBQ and light a match under it, so I leave no evidence.  Very effective.......LOL

As for getting one's feelings hurt.  Rarely do I take things personally.  I feel my Warrior husband
does.  I somehow can see the larger picture.  What people say to me or do to me, reflects on them, not me.

I wouldn't worry that your genotype is incorrect.  If tested at the clinic, it doesn't get any better than
that.  Dr. D oversees his staff and students and has taught all students how to measure properly.
And usually it's a team that measures.  I honestly think nobody could improve on testing you've
had done.  My husband wishes it were true....He was tested at the clinic as a Warrior and wants to
be a Teacher.  I told him "no, I will not change genotypes with you....case closed"  LOL

If you think your diet needs adjusting or something about your foods doesn't work for you, if
I were you, I'd call the Center and speak to someone who could give you the correct advice.

I will have to disagree here.  I am being presented with two completely different diets on SWAMI...Warrior and Teacher...based solely on a change in personality type.  

I am given in one case when selecting ISTJ, a Warrior diet, consisting of certain foods and spices that I know from past experience bother me.  Also, I'm recommended supplements that I've taken and didn't quite feel right on them.  I also am given basically a starvation diet... no red meat, one poultry, and three seafood portions.

When presented with the Teacher diet, I am given a serving of protein daily, one red meat, two poultry, and four seafood.  The Teacher supplements aid in my digestive issues.  I burped all the time on the Warrior diet with Warrior supplements.  I have flaky fingernails which the biotin in the Teacher supplements help correct.  There are probiotics built into the Teacher Activator supplement.  The food presented to me in the Teacher diet simply makes more sense.  I can follow the recommended portions and only feel slightly hungry between meals.

If I went the other route, an Explorer diet, I haven't seen one in a while, but I would assume I'd be given even more animal protein and other poultry items.  I'm certain it would be too heavy of a diet for me and completely bog down my system.  

With a Teacher diet, I'm in the comfy middle.  Not starving on a Warrior diet and not bogged down on an Explorer diet.

There is a difference between a team of knowledgeable practitioners doing the information gathering for a SWAMI Genotype and an individual doing all of the input for SWAMI Xpress.  If the team can't get it right, it won't be right...

And, so, to complicate things further, from the SWAMI itself:

Quoted Text
The six GenoTypes described by Dr. D'Adamo are very broad characterizations; no individual is purely one GenoType. Since many of the GenoType characteristics overlap, most people will have aspects of at least two or more GenoTypes.


So, really, I probably have aspects of both Warrior and Teacher.  Based on just physical characteristics, I'm coming up 45% Warrior.  But, when you figure in my personality type, I come up 40% Teacher.  Which am I to believe?

And, then, what 3 Pack do I choose?  Each SWAMI highly suggests with six stars the related 3 Pack.  There is no Warrior/Teacher combined 3 pack, unless I want to purchase and consume both, which may not be such a wise thing to do.

If I got an appt at the main office in Bridgeport, how many people are actually going to measure, interview, exam, diagnose, and consult with me?  Does it happen in one day or over several days?  I have no illnesses, unless you count obesity as an illness.

I see Explorers as the "Steady Eddies", Warriors as the "jump from joy to anger in a heartbeat" folks, and Teachers as the "happy-go-lucky goofy airheads".  These are temperments I'm talking about.  All three can have IQ's all over the place.

Chloe has direct knowledge to answer these questions, as she and her husband have been there...  I know from several people's explanations that each appt., etc. happens within a day, definitely.  They know what they are doing.

Your first appointment, Adam is a few hours long.  Probably close to 2.  If you require more visits and live too far away, I'm sure there is a way to work this out so you can keep in touch with the clinic and present new issues as they come up...Keep in mind that we
live an hour from the clinic.  Your distance to the clinic might require a totally different protocol
for follow ups.

Before you come for your appointment, you will answer many questions at home....It will be emailed to you as a questionnaire and you print it out and bring it with you.  You also may bring any medical tests that are relevant.  I suggest if you
have recent blood work, bring it.....and it would almost be in your best interest to wait until you've
taken any test insurance will pay for so you can give your "team" as much info about you as possible.

So you're seeing medical students with a team leader who is an ND  The students are referred to
as the "shift" as they work with Dr. D for a semester of their schooling..   We've seen different shift students because this is a semester that they're working at the clinic and our appointments
are at the same time....so we're with different teams. A few months passes and a new shift joins the clinic.  Dr. D is their professor for these classes and patients give the students an opportunity
to have practical experience.  They are students in naturopathic college at the Univ of Bridgeport and these are 3rd and 4th year students.  They have taken classes with Dr. D so they know everything there is to know about measuring correctly, asking the right questions, making
a genotype assessment....but students do not make assessments by themselves. Dr. D is part of
this so know that you will be assessed correctly.

Basically, the students ask all the questions. Dr. D examined me and my husband in addition to
the tests done by the students, but I don't know if this is how it works for everyone. (whether every patient who sees the shift sees Dr. D)  I suggest you ask these questions when you call for an appointment.  The types of questions asked to me the first time were relative to my reason
for coming to the clinic.  Once there is a general history in the system, each time you go back (if this is what you require), your intake form is generally not going to rehash your history....but just
update what you've been experiencing, healing-wise since your last visit.

You are given a list of supplements and protocols based on needs you have.  YOu are given a
loose leaf binder with your very specific diet.  You might be called a TEacher or a Warrior or even
an Explorer, but what you actually have is a diet that nobody else has....and so whatever your
genotype might be here on this forum, don't get hung up on that name regardless of what your SWAMI calls you.  Remember, your personal SWAMI was created based on entering information
into the computer that SWAMIx could not ask you.  It's THE most personalized diet on the planet.

Generally, your personal diet won't be altered once it's been assigned to you.  Portions might change if you lose weight, gain weight or have new medical issues.  But generally, you can totally
trust the results of your SWAMI presented to you from the Clinic.

As far as your SWAMI being perfect when you leave the clinic, just know that nobody does it better than Dr. D and his students....This is what he's teaching to his students.  This is what they know very well.  How to ask the right questions, how to measure perfectly, how to assess treatment
protocols.  THey will graduate naturopathic college within a year or two and go out on their own
practicing medicine just the way Dr. D taught it to them.

PS. I realized I didn't answer how many students will measure you.  Generally 2, but I've had 4 students with
me before In the exam room,   One student generally works with another for all testing.  Bioimpedence testing is done. You can read about that if you type it into the search box on this website.  Blood testing to determine blood type and secretor status.  I also forgot to mention that you generally leave with a lot of
supplements, which might be taken until you run out....and then next visit, they are completely re-assessed.
At least that has been my experience.

Ditto Chloe - I couldn't have said it better (especially since I'm not one for writing too much).  I agree that I was measured properly at the clinic, and I'm very satisfied with my teacher diet.  I believe we're all individuals and have different personality traits whether they're inherited or background related.  All I can say is I put my full trust in Dr. D and his team.   ;)

I feel incredibly fortunate that I was able to get all the "additional" testing done when I did (in the early 2000's), since they are looking more and more unattainable.

Perhaps if Dr. D isn't able to do the tests and cannot offer a referral, it isn't that necessary to do them, afterall...or, perhaps, just by seeing Dr. D in person, his input outweighs the other tests...just my thoughts.
Posted by: Adam, Monday, April 15, 2013, 1:44pm; Reply: 36
It's OK, I might go see him after I retire, which is in a couple of years.  Right now, I'm pretty happy with simply knowing what NOT to eat.  Both Teacher/Warrior diets compare pretty well on the avoids.  I can read my body pretty well now.  I have no illnesses, just overweight.  My skin issues are completely cleared up.  Just have to fix these fingernails.  :-/

The hot paprika recommended by the Teacher SWAMI I've been using seems to irritate me a bit too much, so I'm dropping it for a while.  The Warrior SWAMI has it as a dot, so I'll just use it occasionally.  

The chocolate recommended by the Warrior SWAMI jazzes up my system just like coffee.  I'm caffeine sensitive, so I don't drink coffee, I now drink green tea.  Perhaps chocolate is not a good recommendation either.  Chocolate is a dot on my Teacher SWAMI, so I'll just have chocolate every once in a while.  There are plenty of foods that are superfood/neutral in common on both SWAMI's that will keep me well fed and healthy for a lifetime.

No worries here.  :)

I don't think enough about A2 is known or was ever known to change a person's diet in any drastic way.  We are the result of our genetics and the goal of a personalized SWAMI is to
prevent the weak links in our genetics from becoming our fate.  My husband who is a Warrior does not have signs of diabetes.  His maternal grandmother was a diabetic.  His mother's sister and brother were diabetics...His father died of a heart attack at age 60 and DH's diet is clearly targeted to address diabetes/heart disease as he presented with high blood pressure when
he first saw the shift.  The fact that my husband is a non secretor is more vital information
related to the diet he was given, than his subtype which is unknown.

The fact that I'm an A2....well, I found that out when I saw Dr. D in his clinic in Greenwich, Ct in the late 1980s....He had a new practice and was just starting out as a young ND.  I don't know the criteria for testing for A subtype but I learned my subtype in my first or second visit.  So, if Dr. D thought it was vital for him to know your subtype in order to give you the perfect
diet, I'm sure it would be considered.  As for my diet, it's not hinging on my subtype...It merely is extra information and more Teachers would be A2 than Warriors....My diet is personally geared for my genetics, my current health assessment and more is focused on issues that will silence genes that need to stay silent.  Your subtype is about as relevant or irrelevant as knowing your Myers Briggs type.  The basic  information and measuring required to assess your genotype isn't based on knowing either of these two things.  It's interesting to know....but not mandatory.  I
happen to know additional genetic information because I did the National Geographic test that
gave me DNA ancestry information.  It's interesting....but didn't impact my diet in any way.

Even if A2s need a bit more protein as fish or whether they tolerate some foods better than others isn't something that is clearly known or scientifically studied.  Knowing your subtype isn't going to change anything about your visit to the clinic.

I agree with Drea....It's worth everything to see Dr. D and have his input..

Adam,
My Meyers-Briggs puts me as an ISFJ but as a teacher I am soooo not a happy go lucky goofy airhead! Au contraire, I am a deep thinker, analytical and emotional.
Reading Chloe's post about her sons made me smile as she described me! It is as if my brain is working way faster than my speech and I do feel this need to verbally explain details, etc.
Easy E made me laugh with the explorer.."out there in their own world". I have many explorer tendencies but as a teacher, I often seem to see the big picture.
My speech is different than my writing. I speak with my hands, always,and have a very expressive face. It is difficult sometimes for me to communicate in writing what is much easier to express verbally..(voice inflection, tone, "isms" inherited from my French family... ;D (shoulder shrugs, pouty or turned up mouth with sounds rather than actual words) OK...my sons call me "drama"... :D ;D 8)

I think the A1 A2 thing probably doesn't matter much.  It still is blood type A, even though there may be some slight differences.  

I can be an airhead, goofy, happy go lucky, serious and perhaps overanalyze things, or sometimes underanalyze them, take things too literally, take them too abstractly, and tend to be pretty steady, but at times have flown off the handle and blew things way past what they needed to be, maybe out of boredom or having sub par communication skills using my words!

I think the personality traits have some overlap and everyone can have traits from all of the genotypes, though Dr. D's assessments of personalities is what probably fascinates me the most (i am a counselor, so go figure!)  It really does give me a frame of reference that i keep in mind  when working with people.

There is a range with F at one end and T at the other, and as we age and learn we often come towards the middle but still stronger on one.  
Both the F and T use feeling and thinking to make decisions it is just how much of each we use.
The "T" is not cold, they just think more about their decisions than F's do.
I can say this as I am a F married to a T.

Most men are "T" and most women are "F".
We have used Myers Briggs a lot where I worked and it is a decent tool for understanding each other but we should be careful not to box ourselves or others as "types".
